2016-17 Season Stats
|Has phenomenal sniping ability, great puck skills and the speed to be a constant scoring threat from the wing position. Can also set up his linemates well when teams bear down on him.|
|Struggles in the defensive zone and lacks awareness when not on the attack. Must get stronger to be able to handle the biggest, toughest and best NHL defensemen. Takes some shifts off.|
|Speedy scoring winger with upside.|
